Why Donate?

These parks are very special places. For years, millions of people have traveled from around the country and world to experience the top-class whitewater, climbing, hiking, sight-seeing, and much more available in southern West Virginia.

Your contribution to Friends will help us to continue to promote environmental stewardship and appreciation for the park. We want to help our communities and those visiting the area understand its significance and find what they cherish about the park to pass on to future generations.

You can donate any amount at the link below. If you interested in donating by becoming a Friend, you can find more information here.
